Re: 1950's Vidrio Steel Fan I restored

not really a Big Arse project ....i guess it could have been tho.... Any idea's of how to attach the fan to my Helmet? Will that Add Horsepower?
 
Re: 1950's Vidrio Steel Fan I restored

Very nice. I have an odd obsession with old fans too. Maybe it's the insane danger of losing a finger that was completely acceptable back in the day.

Here is one my buddy and I found while cleaning out his basement. Sandblasted it and coated it and now we have an awesome new fan for the shop.

sweet nice to see people using them instead of buying a Crap fan at walmart that will never last 60 years
 
Re: 1950's Vidrio Steel Fan I restored

I've got an old GE fan that would easily take your entire hand off let alone a finger or two. Will have to fire it up and video it. I think it's possessed.
 
Re: 1950's Vidrio Steel Fan I restored

You've insprired me to fix up an old 40's / 50's fan I have, think I'll do red white and blue!
 
Re: 1950's Vidrio Steel Fan I restored

Tim def get a video of it chopping a cucumber or something....Learn it's super easy to restore these hardest part is paint which if i do it again i'll get Only Rustoleum not Krylon (it sux and drips like water) but yea solder on a new cord, sand the blades ,paint and reassemble. on ebay people are asking around $150 for a restored one and like $10 for a rusty piece like mine was

Re: 1950's Vidrio Steel Fan I restored

I had a hassock floor fan like this one that was handed down from my Grand parents to my folks to me... circulated air 360 degrees, frigging HEAVY!
Wish I still had it.... had to get rid of it when the daughters were at crawling age and wanted to stick their little hands in it. :mad:
